About Ghostsigns

Ghostsigns is my (Sam Roberts) website dedicated to ghost signs, the fading remains of hand-painted advertising, typically on walls. I’ve been documenting, researching and writing about them since 2006 and most of this work features on this site.

I want to make as much of my work free for all to access. If you value it, and are able to, then please make a monthly or one-off contribution to support me.

The following are some frequently asked questions with links to useful resources to explore the themes in more depth, many from the blog. If you want to get deeper into the topic after this then I recommend our book Ghost Signs: A London Story.

Subscribe to my newsletter for news, events and projects from the world of ghost signs. I curate the newsletter roughly monthly and welcome submissions.
